“Our Own.” The child that sports upon our knee, And clings to our embrace, With all the childish witchery That lights his happy face. If he hath blest another's arms, And other birth hath known, llow coldly do we view his charms Cesidc our fair, Our Own ! A mansion rears its lofty walls, With wealth’s impress thereon— With stately dome and friendly halls, And costly steps and stone. We upward cast no envious eye At pillar, roof, and dome; But, rearing castle in the air, Do loftier build Our Own. The world holds forth its glittering arms, * And beckons to its breast: Displaying all its subtle charms. As brightest, purest, best; But turning from its luring art, Where purer joys are known, How sweet to nestle to that heart We know is all Our Own ! Though lowlier be the vine clad cot, Than towering mansions nigh, To eyes content, it is a spot Too dear for wealth to buy; There is the kettle's busy song Upon the warm hearth-stone. And joyous bosoms all day long To glad and bless Our Own. Of all the wealth of all the world, The dearest and the best la where affection’s wings arc furled, And loving lips are pressed. Tis not the hoards of massive gold. That gilds life’s throbbing throne, Hut knowing what we have and hold Is honestly Our Own. And thus life’s lessons best are learned, Midst poverty not wealth; But where contentment’s arm hath earned A home of joy and health; And by ^he human leaves which fall, Where Death his seeds hath sown, We learn each breast must bear its pall, And so mu9t e'en Our Own. Dari ft iK How Hannah came near being Left. A few days since, says the editor of the Sul livan County Whig, we were at the depot of the branch railroad in Newburg, and being punctual, as usual—i. e. half an hour before the starting time of the train—we had an opportu nity of making a few observations. We were no sooner seated than in came an elderly gen tleman, who purchased a ticket for himself, and at the same time remarked to the clerk that he must keep four or five tickets ready for his son and his family, for they would want then quick when they did come, for they were always bc hind-hand. Fifteen minutes elapsed, and the old gentleman again stepped up to the clerk, and said—‘Only fifteen minutes ! they’ll be too late, of course—always !’ Ten minutes more elapsed, when the old gent’s voice was again heard—‘ Confound them, T hope they will he left! They deserve it.’ ‘All aboard !’ says the conductor; and all aboard it was, save our old friend, whose folks were always held nd-hand. * Do wait a few minutes, conductor,’ he cried; * Dan’el’s a cornin’!’ The conductor, with his usual kindness, promised to wait a minute, but the time was pressing. The attention of the passengers was by this time attracted to the spot, and all eyes were directed to Daniel; and sure enough, there was Daniel on a keen run, with a hoy, and a girl, and a valise, and a carpet-bag, and an um brella, and a baby, about two blocks off, making a bee-line for the cars. The old gentleman again got excited, and by turns called to the approaching travellers and heaped impreca tions upon them for their tardiness. ‘There’s Dan'el, but where’s Hannah?’ But Hannah was not to be seen, till the cry of ‘Time’s up !’ from the conductor brought her round the same corner Daniel had just turned, in fine style. The excitement now increased among the spec tators. The conductor gave one minute more only. Could Hannah make the cars in one minute, she would yet go with the family.— The old gentleman stamped; he waved his handkerchief; he shouted ! Hannah ran well ; but alas ! she was fat, and the day was very warm. She made half the distance, and was over-done—blown, flabbergasted. The old gentleman, Daniel, boy, gill, baby, conductor and hrakeman, all shouted at the top of their voice hut Hannah couldn't raise a run. A hun dred yards yet to make—the whistle blew, the bell rang; hut Hannah came at a snail’s pace, and it was just as the wheels started she was dragged aboard, nearly red-hot from her severe and unusual exercise. ‘There,’ says the old gentleman, turning to Daniel, when all were on board, ‘when your wife travels with me again, she’ll take the train ahead of me. Al ways bchind-hand /’ Making Faces at a Witness. One of the ‘ smartest’ lawyers in one of the New England States has an unfortunate infirm ity of the muscles of his countenance, and the couvulsive movements or twitches of his pon derous eyebrows, nose, and the parts adjacent thereto, are almost frightful to persons unac quainted with the gentleman, and with this pe culiarity of his physiognomy. It happened on one occasion, during a trial in which Squire II. was engaged, that a buxom matron was placed on the witness stand. The good lady was one of the class who are not afraid to look about them, and withal, understand the use of their tongues. Squire II. was observing her atten tively while the junior counsel conducted the examination. The lady proceeded, with great volubility, in her narrative of what somebody did and said in the house, in reference to some thing in dispute between the parties litigant. At length she caught the eye of Squire H., and, reddening with anger, she stopped, but at the suggestion of the examining attorney pro ceeded. Uut she soon observed the legal nen tlernan’s visage turned towords her again, and the eternal grimance of the unconscious lawyer upset her temper. She stopped, looked furiously at Squire H., gave her head a loss, fanned herself violently a minute, and then proceeded with her testimo ny. Again, on looking around at Squire II., she caught him at it, and her anger rose almost to the boiling point. Sbe ebook her fan at bim, and looked as if * sbe would eat him up.’ His honor the judge at length requested her to go on with lier narrative. The indignant witness drew herself up as stiff as a whalebone, and snapped out, * Please your honor, I can't as long as that ugly man sits there a making faces at me.' The gravity of the bench, bar, jury-box, and spectators’ gallery, was all upset in a promis cuous heap, and everybody but Squire II., thought it a capital joke—on the face of it. In Case of Fire. Going to a fire is an art which needs study and practice to make one perfect, yet how bun glingl v do some proceed when present at one. There is Philanthropos, who always runs when there is an alarm, and directs his untrained efforts towards saving property in the most ab surd way. We have directed our attention to tb'S subject lately, and obtained from an artist in the line, the rules that regulate his actions at fires. We commend them to the reader. 1. If the fire be a small affair, rush furious ly up stairs, seize the poker and tongs and rush furiously down again. 2. Rush back, and bring away a boot jack. 3. If the fire has increased, your duty will beeome more pleasant than ever, for then you are justified in throwing things out of the win dow. Avail yourselves of the opportunity, and seize the mirrors and dash them out of the window. Perhaps they may break, but the rule is never to carry glass down stairs. If any body makes impertinent observations, as cribe it to his ignorance. 4. Feather beds may be carried down. 5. Rureau drawers may be thrown down, especially if there bo anything in them. f>. Finally, throw out everything that may afford amusement to the crowd, and relieve the horror of the scene, for in so doing yon extract pleasure from a painful occurrence, which is the province of both a philosopher and an artist. -N. Y. Pic. A Great Shot. The ‘best shot ever made,’ that we have heard of, says the Cincinnati Commercial, was that of an old hunter, who told us the story, but for the perfect accuracy of whose statements we will not vouch. Our friend, the hunter, was standing on the bank of the Miami river, rifle in hand, and spied on the opposite shore a noble deer, upon which he fired. At the instant he touched the trigger, an enormous fish leaped from the water and received the ball through the gills ; the deer dropped dead in his tracks. The hunter took a canoe, which, as fortune was in a smiling mood, happened to be near, secured the fish, which had ceased to flounce and was floating with the current, and landed at the spot where his prize—the deer—had fallen. On examining the animal he found that the ball had passed through him, and looking in the direction it had taken, he dis covered a dead bear, also slain by the indomi table bullet, and presently saw that it had buried itself in an old poplar, and from the hole which it had pierced, gushed a stream of honey bright as gold ! He stooped to gather a stick to stop this waste of sweetness, when his hand rested on a rabbit, which he lifted and then dashed to the ground in anger, when lo, he smote a flock of quails, killing a num ber of them. Thoroughly disgusted with the excess of success which had come upon him, he took good care of his game, and in due sonenn. <>f the honey, also. The Russian soldier is always hungry, so when he discovers a field of cucumbers, water melons, or gourds, he ^ats them without washing them, with the rind on. If with this the poor wretch has a little salt and a mouth ful of brandy, he would not exchange with a prince. These men are mere children.— They must be led, but they obey readily. Every four months they receive their pay of three paper roubles (GO cents). The soldier who is not on active service wears always, Summer and Winter, a cowskin cloak of a mixed gray and red color. This is his gar ment and his bed. Once a year he receives a new cloak, with three pairs of ankle-boots of Russia leather, with excellent soles. He does not use them, for he takes great care of his kit. His ample belts are always dazzling white, his arms shine like a mirror, and are always in good condition. If you don't want to fall in in love with a girl, don’t commence flirting with her. This courting for fun is like boxing for fun. You put on your gloves in perfect good humor, with the most friendly intentions of exchanging a few amicable blows ; you find yourself insen sibly warrned with enthusiasm of the conflict, until some unlucky punch in the ‘ veskit’ de cides the matter, and the whole affair ends in a downright fight.—Lowell Courier. Grapes in Consumption. The use of grapes as an article of food is much recom mended in cases of consumption. They con tain a large quantity of grape sugar, the kind which most nearly resembles milk sugar in its character and composition, which is also very useful for consumptives, it having a great attraction for oxygen, and, therefore, readily alfording materials for respiration. Quick Digestion—Healthy Food.—Of all articles of food, boiled rice is digested in the shortest time—an hour. As it contains eight tenths nutritious matter, it is a valuable sub stance for diet. Tripe and pig’s feet are di gested almost as rapidly. Apples, if sweet and ripe, are next in order. Venison is diges ted as soon as apples. Roasted potatoes are j digested in half the time required by the same vegetable boiled, which occupy more than three hours and a half—more than beef or Mutton. Bread occupies three hours and a quarter.— Slewed oysters and boiled eggs are digested in three hours and a half—an hour more than i is required by the same articles raw. Turkey and goose are converted in two hours and a j half—an hour aud a half sooner than chickens. Roasted veal, pork, and salted beef, occupy ! five hours and a half—the longest of all arti i cles of food.—Scientific American. It is estimated that one hundred pounds white zinc paint will cover, when applied in three coats, of new work, as much surface as one hundred and sixty-six and two-thirds pounds pure while lead. The white zincs, even w hen exposed to coal, gas, bilge water, and sulphu rous vapors, retain their original brilliancy and whiteness. Apartments just painted, with zinc paint, may be slept in with impunity ; where as, according to the best authority, rooms should not be used for sleeping apartments for two or three months after being painted with lead. Kindness kindles the fire of friendship. Singular Occurrence. We learn that a schooner which recently ar rived at this port from the Marquesas Islands, picked up near the Equator, upwards ot a hundred casks of oil, which were found float ing in a group very close to each other. On examination the casks were found coated with barnacles, except upon a small portion of the sides, which would be in contact with others when packed together. This would indicate that they had been in the water a long time, and further, they had only recently been sepa rated. Upon them were also found certain initials branded, which answer to those of a whaler which sailed out of Nantucket some five or six years ago, and never was heard of afterwards. It is a matter of curious specu lation how these casks came to be floating to gether at this late day, and how one portion of them should be covered with barnacles and others not. It may be accounted for by sup posing that the vessel foundered in a gale and went down with cargo on board. She re mained at the bottom of the ocean for several years, until the timbers decayed, when the levity of the oil became sufficient to burst the rotten timbers of the deck and rise to the sur face ; and it must have been very shortly after this occurrence that they were found, as the winds and waves would very soon have scat tered them, and barnacles attached themselves to all portions of their surface. Had they tongues to speak, what a story they could tell of the wonders of the deep !—San Francisco Herald. A Good Reply. A Sabbath school teacher, instructing his class on that portion of the Lord’s Prayer, ‘ Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven,’ said to them— ‘ You have told me, my dear children, what is to be done, the will of God ; and where it is to be done, on earth ; and how it is to be done—as it is done in Heaven. How do you think the angels and the happy spirits do the will of God in Heaven, as they are to be our pattern V The first child replied, 4 They do it imme diately.’ The second, 4 They do it dilligently.’ The third,4 They do it always.’ The fourth, 1 They do it with all their hearts.’ The fifth, 4 They do it altogether.’ Here a pause ensued, and no child appeared to have an answer; but, after some time, a little girl, arose, and said— 4 Why, sir, they do it without asking any questions.’ Some Things we Don't Understand.—We don't understand why a magistrate always ad dresses a female as 4 My good woman.’ We don’t understand why the baker always laughs with the housemaid when he leaves the bread. We don’t understand why, when a vocalist is encored in a song, he’s sure to sing something else. We don’t understand why a woman looks pretty on horseback. We don’t under stand how to live like a gentleman on five hun dred a year.’ We don’t understand why pan cakes are only made on a winter morning.— We don’t understand why we never won any thing in a raillu. We don’t understand why a man invariably insists that he’s 4 all right, when he is drunk.’ We don’t understand what shabby black gloves have to do with going to clt u rch.—Exchange. Barking out of Tune. The delicate and sensitive ear of the brave Rameau led him to acts sometimes of cruelty. One morning a friend calling in found his wife in tears be cause Rameau had thrown her little lap-dog out of the window. ‘True, very true,’ said Rameau, ‘1 cannot deny it; but really it was quite intolerable, the beast harked so horribly out of tune.’ Killing Fowls.—Only turkeys and geese should he bled to death—the flesh of chickens becomes dry and insipid from loss of blood.— The best plan says the Poultry Journal, is to take a blunt stick, such as a child’s bat or boy’s wooden sword, and strike the bird a smart blow on the back of the neck, about the third joint from the head : death follows in a moment. Prince Albert is a ‘hen-pecked husband,’ if we may believe the London writers, one of whomsays: “ Prince Albert was lately out for a day’s visit to Cambridge, with instruction that he must return by ten at night. When there, the Professors became so prosy in their ad dresses, that, being promised an entertainment by the municipality, he telegraphed tor per mission to remain till twelve. The reply came from Victoria that, as a punishment for this conjugal disobedience, he must return by eight; and at this early hour the poor Prince was obliged to trudge into Buckingham Pal ace, to escape suspicion and consequences of marital infidelity.” Hemp a Narcotic.—We see it stated in an article in the National Intelligencer, that the hemp plant possesses a narcotic resin, called in Asia “ hochshish,’ which has the same elFect on fish and cattle as coculos indicus. In streams where hemp is rotted, the fish come to the surface of the water in a state of intoxi cation, and to all appearance, dead ; and cat tle, after drinking the water, stagger about and cut strange capers. These facts being misunderstood, a prejudice has for many years existed against water rotting hemp, under the impression that the process caused death among the cattle in the neighborhood of the streams where it is carried on. Things to be Deplored.—That wine is not like gratitude, because then no one would indulge in it to excess ; that vice is not like the tax-gatherer, because it would need only to be seen to be avoided ; that our law reform ers do not apply to the duration of a Chancery suit the whole maxim of the Institutes, ‘ The law abhors a perpetuity;’ that womens’follies were not like their bonnets, for then they would every day be growing less ; that inju ries were not like borrowed umbrellas, for then those who receive them would never think of returning them. Certain Cure for Corns. One teaspoon f nl of tar, one of coarse brown sugar, and one of saltpdtre, the whole to be warmed together. Spread it on kid leather the size of the corns, and in two days they will be drawn out. A fellow out of health went to Saratoga to pick up a little, and picked up enough to send him to the State Prison for three years. That is recruiting with a vengeance. The idle should not be classed among the living ; they arc a set of dead men who can’t be buried. A. W.

These Soaps are presented to the public, after having been thoroughly tested by ourselves and friends, as the best Labor Saving Articles ever discovered, ami we offer them to the public as every way worthy of their confidence. They do the work of the Laundry in simply warm wa ter, either Soft, II. rd, or Salt ; despensing with Roil ing or Pounding and the Washboard—consequently a large amount of Fuel and w- ar and tear of clothing is saved, and not one fourth the amount of Labor is r • quire I to do the washing of it family. The tendency of these Soaps is to soften the clothes and loosen the hold of the dirt, without injury. Washing is done by simply rubbing the Soap on the parts of clothes most soiled, and placing them in warm suds sufficient to cover them — tie re let them remain a few hours, (or al ■ night it conven ient,) then, with a slight hand rubbing and good rinsing, they will be perfectly clean, and without injury to the most delicate fabric. Merinoes, Silks, Shawls, Ac., may be washed with perfect safety. Cotton Goods, Prints of any color that w!ll fade in water alone, when washed with these Soaps, according to the directions, will not change, but remain firm, and the colors rendered more bri limit. For washing Woollens,Prints,Gilding, Mirrors, Maps, Paintings, Lamps, Silver Ware, Ac., Ac , these Soaps are superior to any in the market. The cost of tlu-se Soaps is no more than of those ordinarily used; and besides this, the great wear and tear of clothing conse quent upon the old method ofhnrdrubbing upon aboard, machine, pounding barrel, Ac., Ac., and the necessity ol boiling, is wholly avoided. We ask for this Soap a fiir trial, choosing to trust to i s own merits rather than resort to the pnblicat on of a long list of certificates from those who have used it wherever it has been manufactured, which we have in our power to do were it necessary.

Sagadnhock Building. rTo the Public. plastic HofSe _ 'T’HEsubscriliers having purchased the riglit to manufac *■ ture and apply the above named shoe, for the city of Bath, are now prepared to accommodate such as wish to profit by the best improvement ever made for the benefit of that noble and useful animal, the horse. No pains should be spared to make the labor of that valuable animal as easy as possible, and also to guard against lameness, tenderness, &e., with which horses have always been more or less troubled. To this end horse-shners have been experimen ting for the last 50 years, and until receutly with but little success. With this improvement,however, all seems to be realized that is necessary. The shoe will prevent lameness, cure tenderness, make a horse travel a greater distance witli less fatigue, and being made of steel will wear very much longer than the common iron shoe.
